Foreword

Foreword

This report is the one of a suite of evidence documents that will support Stage 2 of the development of a pilot Pentland Firth and Orkney Waters Marine Spatial Plan. Stage 2 consists of a number of research projects carried out to fill the knowledge gaps identified in Stage 1 - the development of a Marine Spatial Planning Framework and Regional Locational Guidance. The information collected during this stage, including this report, will be used to inform Stage 3, which is the on-going drafting of the Marine Spatial Plan itself.

It is intended that the Marine Spatial Plan will be submitted for consultation in 2015.
